2019 Consumer Confidence Report Released

Demonstrating its commitment to public health protection and the public’s right-to-know about local environmental information, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires all community water systems to put annual drinking water quality reports into the hands of their members. These reports (also known as consumer confidence reports), which EPA developed in consultation with water suppliers, environmental groups, and the states, will enable you to make practical, knowledgeable decisions about your health and your environment.

Pump House Cleanup

This week the Clarks Branch Water Association board contracted S&D Construction to remove a group of trees between the Dole Road pump house and river intake pipe. All the debris was hauled off and we’ll work to keep it clear. The pump house was previously damaged from a fallen tree and this work will prevent that from happening again.

Chris Bingham, board president, took time to clean the inside of the pump house in preparation for an inspection by the Oregon Health Authority. The inspection was postponed because of COVID-19 but everything is in order to pass. The board is working towards rebuilding the pump house and are in the works to get a catwalk attached to the outside of the structure before fire season.
